Answer: I can guarantee that 99.9% NO!!!



Story:

One day I forgot to take out my thumbdrive from my pocket and put together with my clothes into my washing machine. After the full process of washing, when I hang my clothes, I saw my thumbdrive was inside the washing machine!!! That time I was saying in my heart... SHIT already!!! All my work stuffs, my personal stuffs and my 'hamsap' stuffs all sure gone already!

Then I hang my thumbdrive for overnight for it dry itself, the next day I tried to plug into my computer USB port... and you guess what? Sure not working right?

Suddenly I saw the LED light responding, and I saw got removable hardware detected! I really can't believe it. I checked the contains, and all my files were still there!!! My thumbdrive still alive!!! Phewwww~~~~~!!!!! So I can continue view my 'hamsap' stuffs now... kekeke :P

I think I'll just stick to not putting my USB thumbdrive into the washer and save me that heart attack, hor... *checks pockets*

Drew said...

Of course can, most electronic device if split into water in turning off mode, after 100% dry, they can be use one... Even handphone :P Next time you drop your handphone in the water, remember to turn it off first and let it dry before using it again...

Ok, I wanna try too! Which Wash Cycle was it, or is that not important? Can use with colors, or just whites? Ok, ok, ok!!

This happened to my dad numerous times. He never check the pockets before putting the clothes to wash. Haha...
We called his thumbdrive supperdrive, still functioning after a few washes. Amazing!

Simple American said...

I did that once.

And I had to buy a new jump drive.

Hamsap lor?

moz monster said...

Wah .... quickly ... ask reporter to put in newspaper !!!!! =)

I don't leave thumb drives in my shirt and put them in the wash ... I simply borrow them to people who will take them home. And home is in another country.

All my ex-thumb drives are in India, China, Singapore or Indonesia.

Kenny Ng said...

[may]

[drew]

Huei said...

Heyyyy cool! I tried that before too..accidently..and the thumb drive would be still working fine if i haven't lost it >.<

but it still worked after the full process! thumb drives are so durable! haha =D

Nonnie King said...

It's good that you let it dry before you plug it in.

Just like mobile phone, if it's soaked in water, do not switch it on straight away, dry everything first. It might just work.

firehorse said...

CC & Kenny Dun lah say lidat must have hope wan, I think mine maybe in ICU right now, touch and go situation can die anytime, on good days can use little bit, on bad days totally cannot use. I am spending as much quality time as I can on it during those good days, :o(

Patrick said...

Kenny Ng said...

[bernard]
cannot say like that... those documents very useful for me to work in new company.

i also experienced this , since flash drives only contain 1 component and no moving objects . Its safe to say that the thumb drives wont die easily when washed or soaked in water...though plugging in your thumb drive when it contains water , that could do some damage :p !..*bzzt*

p.s i see alot of people using apacer...whats with that?
